The non-profit organization *The R Institute* (http://r-institute.org) and
faculty from Virginia Commonwealth University are offering two sections (AM
and PM) of a live, interactive, synchronous online course entitled
*Fundamentals
of Using R* (Sept 27 - Nov 2). The early registration cost (before Sept 10)
for the 14-hour, 5 week course is $195 USD (student); $250 (faculty); and
$295 (practitioner). All live, interactive class sessions are recorded and
provided to participants for their repeated post-class review.



This course is designed for people who are curious about R, new to R, and
who would like to obtain a basic knowledge of R capabilities that apply to
any ultimate intended use of R. This course instructs about the R
environment: reading and writing data and files; using workspaces; R data
types, data structures, and objects; writing simple and complex scripts;
essential R functions and packages; writing your own R functions;
publication-style 2-D and 3-D graphics capabilities using special R
packages, and many other essential topics. The course is designed to serve
as a useful knowledge foundation regardless of one’s ultimate use of R (for
example, statistical and data analyses, programming, writing scripts or
creating packages, using graphics, etc.).



The informational (and registration) site for the Wednesday AM section (AM
by US Eastern Time) is here: https://www.regonline.com/fund-oct-AM This
course runs on five consecutive Wednesdays from Sept 28 to Nov 2, from 11AM
until 2PM ET.



The informational (and registration) site for the PM section (PM by US
Eastern Time) is here: https://www.regonline.com/fund-oct-PM  This course
runs on five consecutive Tuesdays (Sept 27-Nov 1), in the evenings from 6PM
